A first date to be a success

with No Comments

Found in the Argus/Sunday Times. Science reveals sure-fire ways to attract a lover. In order for the first date to be a success, forget about the romantic meal:

Let your body do the talking. Body language is far more important than smooth chat up lines. Adopt an open posture (no folded arms) and mirroring another’s posture will help create a feeling of affinity. Where you meet your love/object of desire is crucial because meeting a stranger when physiologically aroused increase that chance of having romantic feelings towards them, according to studies. A high rickety bridge is found to be more sexier and romantic than those who met on a stable one. Going to the funfair and going on the rollercoaster. Going to the movies and seeing a thriller. Laughter is the best medicine. Share a joke together. Humour fosters feelings of closeness between strangers. Music is really the food of love. Many people will turn to so called romantic tunes. They say rock music might be a better idea. The way through to a persons heart is through their stomack. Chocolate works well because it induces feelings of excitement and apprehension. Exercise raise levels of dopamine, another neurotransmitter. Looking into each others eyes brings a feeling of closeness and attraction, than seeing at each others hands.

Communication around your date

You will find that an awkward attempt to be real is more attractive than the most polished attempt to impress. Do not complain, make it a point to notice how often you do complain. Speaking badly about your past or ex relationships is not a good thing. Focus on the date.

You’re attracted – now what? When you make it your intent to simply be present, fears about the outcome disappear. Ask questions – if it’s a sincere question and you really care about the answer. Forget about trying to be cute, to provoke a reaction, or to shock. A few suggestions.

What’s most important to you in your life these days? What’s going on in your life these days? What’s your story? Do you feel like talking? Do you feel like talking to me? Do you feel like talking with yourself? Do you want to have a conversation or do you want to stand and just watch people? Do you want to know what I am thinking right now? Do you want to know what I am thinking about you right now? Do you play tennis/golf/ bridge?
